How to Select the Best Day Planner!
For those that don’t love a digital calendar (or sometimes even in addition to one), a Day Planner is a wonderful tool. However, there are some things to consider to ensure that the Day Planner you are using fits your needs. This download has the best practices for selecting a Day Planner as well as the healthy habits to using it properly.
Productivity Apps Comparison Chart
All of the productivity apps on the market can really create a Pain in My App! Too often we get a referral for a productivity app we should be using (Trello, Asana, Evernote, Todoist, Airtable), download the app, and end up abandoning it because it is overwhelming or does not have the functionality we need for our precious tasks and projects. It would be absurd to purchase a new vehicle without first identifying what needs are important for our livelihood. Choosing a productivity app to store your ideas, thoughts, strategies, tasks, and projects is no different.
The Firm Focus Productivity Apps Comparison Chart provides the user with the preliminary questions to consider before investing time and money into a productivity app. Download the chart today and feel free to reach out to Sarah at Firm Focus if you have further questions about any of these apps or on how to best identify your learning style.
Microsoft Planner – Daily Habits and Demo
One of my favorite apps for Microsoft Office users is the Microsoft Planner app. This is a great tool for managing projects and tasks. Like many project management software on the market, it can be overwhelming if you are not using it in a healthy way. This is one of the areas that we focus on through coaching at Firm Focus. This PDF provides a demo overview of Microsoft Planner and includes the daily habit you may want to incorporate to ensure you are using the tool effectively. Have a great and focused day!
